Building a logpile, March 09
OK, I've swept up the mess from the last logpile and am ready to start stacking.
Here go the first few.
The view from the side I'm working from, notice the logs placed at right angles to most of the stack, for support.
The next 'wall' beginning to be constructed.
Some good long support logs, should stop the pile from collapsing.
Coming on nicely!
Ready to use, well, after the pile on the right, which has been stacked under cover for a couple of weeks.
I am a very enthusiastic 'green' and am involved in a range of projects and community groups which are directly connected with sustainability. These include the Green Party, York in Transition, St Nicholas Fields , Frack-Free York, The World Naked Bike Ride, Alternatives to Violence Project, and others. . . . . . . . . .
I am happily married with two children, and am unconventional and a free thinker, with a very tolerant wife! . . . . . . . . .
I work as an entertainer, 'Professor Fiddlesticks' teaching circus skills and making people happy, since 1992. see wwww.professorfiddlesticks.co.uk
